16.982 Bio-Inspired Structures (MIT) 16.982 Bio-Inspired Structures (MIT)

Description

This course is offered for graduate students who are interested in the interdisciplinary study of bio-inspired structures. The intent is to introduce students to newly inspired modern advanced structures and their applications. It aims to link traditional advanced composites to bio-inspired structures and to discuss their generic properties. A link between materials design, strength and structural behavior at different levels (material, element, structural and system levels) is made. For each level, various concepts will be introduced. The importance of structural, dynamic, thermodynamic and kinetic theories related to such processing is highlighted. The pedagogy is based on active learning and a balance of guest lectures and hands-on activities.

Ezra Pound

Description

Dr Rebecca Beasley explains why we should read Pound, someone she considers as the central figure in early 20th Century poetry movements. In this podcast, Rebecca Beasley talks about a poem that Pound published in Blast, the magazine of the vorticist movement -- which Pound joined in 1914. Vorticism was mainly a visual arts movement, founded by Percy Wyndham Lewis. Blast is available on the Modernist Journals Project website with certain usage restrictions: the poem discussed, Et Faim Sallir le Loup des Boys, is on page 22 of Blast, volume 2 (War Number). Looking up the poem's title in a search engine should bring it up easily. Because we don't want to infringe copyright, the poem is not quoted, so you might want to read it before listening.

Inspiring Sport Participation: The Demonstration Effect.

Description

The Olympic and Paralympic Games can inspire some people to play more sport. 1- Are politicians and Games organisers telling the whole story about sport participation legacies? 2- Is getting people who are already interested in sport to play more a good enough legacy? 3- Do the Olympic and Paralympic Games put some people off playing sport?

Prototype Metro Cars - Birmingham Factory

Description

This photograph shows a prototype rail car being constructed at a Birmingham Factory at some time in 1975. The photograph is taken from a collection of black and white contact prints documenting the development of the whole of the Metro System in Tyne and Wear. The images are taken from the Mott, Hay and Anderson Collection, consulting civil engineers responsible for the Tyneside Metro light rail system and the Tyne pedestrian, cyclist and vehicular tunnels. Most of the photographs were taken by Amber Film Associates and Lambton Visual Aids, 5 and 9 The Side, Newcastle. Reference no. DT.MHA/22/1/A19/2 This image inspired ?Interchange?, an experimental film and album of music by Warm Digits. More information can be found here www.twmuseums.org.uk/halfmemory/warm-digits- interchange (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons. Please cite 'Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums' when reusing. Certain restrictions on high quality reproductions and commercial use of the original physical version apply though; if you're unsure please email archives@twmuseums.org.uk
